Sheriff Newell Normand reports, around 4:30 PM this afternoon, our officers responded to a call of someone shot at 2188 Caddy Dr. in Marrero.
Responding officers located the body of a 10 month-old black male victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, and an unidentified black male victim, believed to be in his early 20s, also suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The infant, identified as Xyahir Davis , was transported to West Jefferson Medical Center where he was pronounced dead shortly after arrival. The second victim was transported to University Hospital where he is currently undergoing surgery.
Our homicide detectives have learned the male victim and infant were inside of the home along with the infant's father and three other male subjects. Witnesses reported someone opened the front door and immediately began firing into the home.
Crime Scene Technicians recovered a number of spent shell casings inside of the home, as well as near the front door.
We have no suspect(s) or motives at this time, therefore anyone with information in regard to this matter is asked to call our homicide division at 504-364-5300 or CRIMESTOPPERS.
